Confidence in Plein Air Painting

This three-day plein air painting workshop will focus on being a more confident painter, regardless of style. Turner will focus this workshop on how to find a dynamic composition in nature and nail down the core elements in a painting: shape, color, and value – all of which he believes can be done in only 15 minutes, allowing the artist ample time to further develop the painting on location. Turner will demonstrate a painting each morning and afternoon of the workshop as well as spend a considerable amount of time one-on-one with each student. Turner’s goal isn’t to influence the students’ style or approach to painting, but rather to come alongside each student and help them better achieve their personal goals.

October 13, 14, & 15  $335

Turner Vinson


Turner Vinson graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and immediately following graduation began a two year apprenticeship with impressionist oil painter, Gary Holland, in Boise, Idaho. Turner developed a deep love and enthusiasm for painting on location and has been passionately painting all over the country for the past 6 years. Turner’s goal as an artist is simple: to represent the world that is around him. He often finds inspiration in his own backyard, in a family member’s gaze, or in the neighborhood he lives in. An important factor in Turner’s painting process is working directly from life. The time invested in each location provides a deep connection, understanding, and experience that he strives to communicate in each painting.
